Why laptops aren’t damned laptops anymore

Once upon a time… in a computing land a long time ago, laptops weighed in at 20 lbs and that was a lightweight model. Then technology improved and laptops became smaller and lighter. There were 12.1″ models that weighed in at 4 lbs. That’s light. That’s small. And that’s just an example. There were an even smaller lighter models for the extremist.

Then came HP. God, I hate them.

HP HDX

The HDX lap…er…um. I guess its a desk-laptop. I don’t know what to call it. This mean machine weighs in at 15 lbs with a 20.1″ screen. The friggin’ box weighs about 25 lbs when they ship it to you.

But…

This is pretty sweet for mobile entertainment. Its just not practical for mobility. Isn’t that what notebooks are for? Hmm… check out this huge…no, GIANT! notebook at HP.
